Triazole: 2 caps a day for an 18yo?

  1. Triazole: 2 caps a day for an 18yo?


    Hi all,
    I've got a tub (90 caps) of Triazole now, and believe it would help me since my libido (etcetera), strength gains and mood haven't been great for a while now.
    I AM young however, which makes me think perhaps I won't need as high a dose as is recommended. Also I'd like to make the tub last as long as possible!

    So: Would two caps a day (instead of the 3-4 most people seem to take) probably have good, noticeable effects?


  2. If your 18 and your having problems with libido and strength gains than something is seriously wrong. Go see your doctor. Taking Triazole isn't the answer....

    I plan on doing so, but would never want to take anti-depression meds.
    I genuinely think it could be low test

  4. Well I say don't use the Triazole. Go to the doctor first. Get blood tests, or whatever the doctor says. Tell he/she your symptoms and try to figure out whats wrong. Don't self-medicate!.

    I guess I might wait then, the main problem there is getting an appointment takes a while (especially since I've moved house), then might have to set up another time for blood tests and then waut weeks for the results!

    You're probably right though

  6. Don't guess with you're body. This is not very wise. It is real simple to get a blood test if you think you're test is low. If it is low, you should see a doctor because that would not be normal for you're age. The money you spent on Triazole could have paid for you're test blood work.

    My blood work should be free anyway

    Thanks for the tips guys - mainly just thanks for reminding me what the sensible thing to do is...

  8. I know it has been said but, BLOOD WORK. You only get one body bro, get your diet and training spot on first for strength gains. Then if, somehow, you have low T (which for an 18yo i sorta doubt) then maybe a supplement, but this should be last effort.

    It's true, I guess I was hoping for a short-term fix while putting off seeing a doctor (exams, wanting to see if these problems persist, etc...)

    Do I have to fast or anything before a blood test?
    I've made a thread about it here

    thanks a lot all

  10. All blood tests require a period of overnight fasting, yes.

    I agree with what the fellas said above, see what your GP says first.

    Normally a 12 hour fast is suggested. I am having some bloodwork done this week for my life insurance policy and they told me 12 hour fast. So dont eat after 10pm and then sleep on it, skip your first meal and have bloodwork done at like 11.

    Oh okay, that's what I thought. Now you and someone else have confirmed it so it looks like I'm not missing anything!

    Would you recommend anything else to check due to these main symptoms (I'm sure the doctor will tell me what I need tested anyway)?:
    Bouts of depression, low libido, mild insomnia & bouts of frequent bad headaches

    edit: Oh and what I already mentioned was "Testosterone, STDs, cholesterol, glucose and WBCs." I'm also thinking cortisol, perhaps...

    Oh thanks Robboe - didn't see your post at first!
    Thanks - will do.

    I am still curious to know though: do you know of anyone who's taken 2 caps a day and noticed results?

    I know of 1 guy who is using just a single cap at night and he is getting results. He was looking for a similar improvement as you. Not so much to boost test really high but more for a better overall balance.

    Thanks for the info man! What would you define as "results"? Any idea how long it took before he noticed the difference?
